Quote# 4787

If the Bible is wrong, I'll be a dead fool and won't care. If it's right, you'll be a live fool, who be where there is much 'wailing and knashing of teeth,'... I'd take Pascal's wager before things get too bad in the Mideast.

Master of the Obvious

Of course, you fail to consider the possibility that the Bible is wrong, but some OTHER holy book is right, in which case you may very well be "knashing" your teeth right alongside an atheist.

"My God" and "no god or gods" are not the only possibilities, idiot.

not completely useless

I second Master of the Obvious. As Dawkins said in a talk, "what if <b>you're</b> wrong?"

I third Master of the Obvious. You assume that you are worshiping the right god, but there are thousands out there. Maybe since you are so scared to be wrong, you should get to worshiping them all.

Shiva will have a thing or two to say to you in the great beyond. Or is it Odin? Zeus, maybe?

Pascal's wager relies heavily on the "My God or No God" tenet. That is why it's not taken all that seriously anymore.

Caustic Gnostic

Brain-dead fool, radorth. You're already there.

Every Hindu knows that every god and goddess they worship could not exist without Brahman, aka Monad, aka Great Spirit. By extension, I assert that the same logic applies to all gods and goddesses everywhere.

If the Bible is wrong, I'll be a dead fool and won't care.

So, you won't mind spending your whole life as a living fool before that?

Have fun squandering your only life.

betting on god isn't really faith, it's "let's choose the most profitable option".

Not a good Xian, or theist, way.

If there is a god, is s/he/it likely to look favourably on the selfserving to the cost of teh genuinely questioning?

Let me state here that I believe that any "good" quality I have must exist multifold in an omnipotent god. Love for those who depend on me is absolute, and regardless: less isn't love. Questioning is a good human trait - it pulled us out of the mud, so a questioning mind must be understood by an omnimath god.

(sorry I'm drinking champagne to celebrate Friday and listening to Haydn's Creation. I'm so mellow and chilled, I'd slither over a waffle...)

Sorry, Pascal's Wager is based on faulty premises. You'll need to work on that one.

super dooper dooper man

have fun with that, I'll practise my teeth-gnashing technique.

That just makes you a coward.

Taking into account the current progresses in science, especially information technology and biotechnology,

it might even be possible (quite far-fetched and science-fiction, of course, but nevertheless more probable than christianity) that science one day discovers a way to 'resurrect' people who died a long time ago.

The question then will be: Who will be gnashing his teeth then? Imagine a christian fundie, who suddenly sees a bright light, opens his eyes, looks around, expects to see his god ... but is greeted by Richard Dawkins ...

How can you pretend that it's possible to CHOOSE to believe something? If there's a god, do you think that would fool him?
